    CSUN professor removes Thailand's 'girl scene' website

    A Cal State Northridge professor who published an Internet guide to Thailand's "girl scene" shut down his Web site Friday after he and campus administrators agreed it tarnished the university's image.

    Kenneth Ng, a tenured economics professor who created BigBabyKenny.com, said he concluded it was best to close the site amid criticism of his moral judgment and what he says was a mischaracterization of the contents.

    "Unfortunately what happened with BigBabyKenny.com is the press got going and implicated me with human trafficking, pedophilia, and prostitution," he said in an interview.

    University officials had previously taken the position that Ng was free to run the site as long as it involved his own time and resources.

    After a story on the site appeared in the Daily News last week, the university received more than two dozen emails from students, staff and faculty, mostly to protest the site, according to CSUN Provost Harry Hellenbrand.

    Also, nearly 200 people worldwide had signed a petition on Change.org, asking CSUN president Jolene Koester to "instruct Mr. Ng to take down his website, upon penalty of dismissal from his position. Doing so would be taking a stand for the protection of women and girls around the world." The university issued a statement Friday signed by Hellenbrand which thanked Ng for removing the site.

    There is no more of a liberal environment than the American university system. I know one employee of a U.S. college who lies about his vacation plans instead of telling his co-workers he is coming to Thailand, simply to prevent the predictable silly accusations.

    Yes....and his eyes are very close to his nose so he must be guilty of whatever he may be accused of.

    For those not familiar with Bangkok, many bars, including the Big Mango Bar, are actually brothels. They employ girls who are paid a small monthly salary and get most of their pay from commissions on drinks customers buy them and from what are referred to as barfines in Bangkok. A barfine is a fee paid to the bar that frees the girl from working for the rest of the day and allows the girl to go out with the customers. Sometimes customers take girls dancing and to dinner but most of the time they take the girl home for sex. There are quotas and girls who don’t get barfined enough or induce enough men to buy them drinks get their salary proportionately reduced.
    It sounds worse than it is because the girls are all over 20, are free to quit whenever they want, go home with whomever they please, and, in the end, many actually end up marrying and/or girlfriending men they meet at the bar. Legions of Thai girls from poor, uneducated, impoverished backgrounds have found opportunity and a better life by working in Bangkok bars and meeting foreign men over the years.
    The whole system sounds a bit unsavory to Western sensibilities but the system is ubiquitous in Bangkok among foreigners and native Thais and a form of the same system is prevalent in most Asian countries–Communist China, Hong Kong, Japan, and Vietnam. It is even rumored that the wives of several high Thai government officials and politicians started out as a hostesses in similar clubs. Before BigBabyKenny.com was turned off, you could have read through the many posts on the site for more information. Now that BigBabyKenny.com has been turned off, I’m not sure if an equivalent source exists.
    The Big Mango Bar advertised itself with a blog. Most of the entries were written by Michael and Nick and they cataloged their experiences navigating The Thailand Girl Scene. The blog was humorous, provocative, eye opening, great reading, and I was an occasional and popular contributor under the screen name BigBabyKenny.
    The feud started over an article I wrote entitled Fresh Produce Shopping Part 2C-Buddha and Babes by BigBabyKenny
    The gist of the article was advice to guys looking for long term relationships to leave the bars (referred to as The Reservation) and look for potential girlfriends and wives among the universe of normal Thai women. The article specifically recommended hanging out at a popular shrine in downtown Bangkok where women with romantic problems go to make offerings and ask the shrines’ god to deliver themselves from bad relationships or help them find a good husband.
    My suggestion was to dress nicely, politely approach women who were leaving the shrine after asking the shrine’s god for relationship relief, introduce themselves, strike up a conversation and ask them to share a cup of coffee at the nearby mall. That way they could meet normal Thai women instead of Thai girls who worked in bars, who make a living on drink commissions and barfines, and, frequently, are specialists at scamming foreign men out of their money.
    Nick and Michael originally published the article and then decided it was too disrespectful of Thai Culture and religion. The feud started because after censoring my article, they made some disparaging remarks about me on their blog and refused me the opportunity to respond to them. It really got me going that guys who owned and supported themselves by running a brothel/bar would get on their moral high horse and excoriate me for disrespecting Thai culture. What they were doing seemed far worse.
    There was a lot of interest in the Bangkok Expat community about exactly what was in the article but Nick and Michael deleted all discussion and comments about the episode from their blog and continued disparaging me in print.
    A couple of months later, I started BigBabyKenny.com so that my original article could see the light of day and to defend myself against the things Nick and Michael had written about me.
